Tubu Tree Camp
The perfect mix of water and land safari
Tubu Tree Camp
This relatively small tented camp is situated on Hunda Island, the largest island in the Jao reserve, on the western side of the Okavango Delta. While its sister camps Little Tubu, Kwetsani, Jacana and Jao, are more wetland focused, Tubu offers some of the best dryland viewing in the area. The camp has its own airstrip, which adds to the sense of exclusivity. Its surrounding forests are a great space to see leopard, while its other areas offer a consistent variety of typical large and small Delta game.
At the lodge
The communal areas stretch out in a linear fashion along the floodplain, raised on stilts that create unmatchable views. The luxurious lounge and dining areas invite relaxation in a modern colonial style that tickles the imagination (think if Tarzan's tree house was luxury). There is a small swimming pool with recliners and sun umbrellas, and an elevated deck that is equipped with a campfire and a spotting scope to keep you entertained for hours.
The camp consists of eight en-suite tents and a family tent. Elevated and built amongst an ancient forest, Tubu has a tree-house feel with traditional decor and light, airy interiors. Large comfortable beds, tucked under four poster style mosquito nets, look out of the mesh sliding doors onto rolling views. Depending on the weather, you can choose to shower either indoors or outdoors. Relaxing on your private deck’s recliner furniture is considered an absolute must in the hotter hours of the day.
The daytime game drives uncover an abundance of different creatures, while thrilling night drives illuminate some unusual nocturnal species. A visit to the Delta without a mokoro (dug out canoe) trip is not advisable. These trips provide a different perspective as you glide silently through the meandering waterways, soaking up the scenery and wildlife. There are also water level dependant boating trips which will expand your explorations of this delta. A spot of catch and release fishing also creates an element of excitement. A real highlight is a star bed sleep out for up to four people.
